Happy 115th Anniversay - Ferry Bldg

07/13/13 - posted by W.M. - wmccullar<at>juno.com

After reading and posting on a couple of San Francisco's "gems or monstrosities", I thought to post about a different one that I'm certain we can pretty much all agree on as a true iconic image.

According to: http://www.historyorb.com/today/events.php , today (July 13th) marks the 115th anniversary of the 1898 opening of the Ferry Building.

While I sometimes purposely tend to "erase" my mind's image of the San Francisco skyline that are littered with the TransAmerica pyramid and Sutro Tower, the (real iconic) image of the Ferry Building along with it's magnificent clock tower will forever remain in my memory as an absolute treasure.

So, HAPPY 115th ANNIVERSARY to our "GEM" of the Port of San Francisco!
